For those that have family members caught up in the catastrophic Hurricane Irma that has been devastating lands in the Caribbean and nearby areas, there has been one app that has hit the headlines this week as being a potential life saver in this situation.
This is the Zello Walkie Talkie app, a free download from the App Store or Google Play which turns your phone into a vital communications device between two users as long as you have a network or WiFi connection.
As a result of the usefulness of the app amidst the ongoing disaster, the app has now soared to the top of the App Store as the most downloaded app of the week.
If you are genuinely worried about family members who happen to be around the surrounding area on holiday, you can use the Zello Walkie Talkie app to quickly communicate to them.
One of the best features of the app is that it allows for shared channels to communicate instantly over voice without the recipient having to answer the call which could come in extremely useful during an emergency.
